The Curious Affliction Known as Romnesia

With hundreds of women flanking the stage in Fairfax, Virginia, to explain the other presidential candidate’s constant backtracking and sidestepping, President Obama introduced a new medical term: Romnesia.

President Obama goes on to list the many symptoms of Romnesia, but we’ll just list a few of the highlights:

  • If you say you’re for equal pay for equal work, but you keep refusing to say whether or not you’d sign a bill that protects equal pay for equal work -- you might have Romnesia.
  • If you say women should have access to contraceptive care, but you support legislation that would let your employer deny you contraceptive care –- you might have a case of Romnesia.
  • If you say you’ll protect a woman’s right to choose, but you stand up at a primary debate and said that you’d be delighted to sign a law outlying -- outlawing that right to choose in all cases -– man, you’ve definitely got Romnesia.

Don’t let Romnesia afflict the your friends. Make sure they know what’s at stake for Virginia’s women.
